There is an organic wholeheartedness to Healing that helps it avoid being twee, thanks in part to a clutch of strong performances.

May 8, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A prison story with a twist, it's set in the Victorian countryside and graced with moments of pastoral beauty, thanks to Oscar-winning cinematographer Andrew Lesnie.

May 7, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The film's true star is the lyrical avian cinematography by Andrew Lesnie, of The Lord of the Rings renown.

It has something to say about the importance of therapy (whatever the form) and the power of forgiveness. There's much to reflect upon.

Stock characters and clunky, heavy-handed storytelling keeps Healing, the new Australian drama from Peaches director Craig Monahan, well and truly tethered to the ground.

May 13, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Admittedly, Healing is very heavy on metaphors and symbols, yet director Craig Monahan (The Interview) - who co-wrote With veteran tapper Alison Nisselle (Phoenix), inspired by a real prison program - never makes the obvious feel forced or mawkish.
